Leaf Vacuum Trucks Status

Wednesday, Dec 13.  The North Little Rock Sanitation Leaf Vacuums are in Area Four.  Pleaes see map.  Sanitation crews are working extended hours and weekends to keep up with the falling leaves.   Please remember to not rake your leaves into the gutter or storm drains.   Also do not rake piles over loose rocks or bricks as they damage the machines and slow the crews down.   Thank you.  Any information can be obtained by dialing 371-8340.
